    Not surprising. The NYT buried their own investigation of Acorn. The Washington Post chose not to report on the Panther story. Anything that may embarrass the President or doesn't fit with their leftist agenda simply isn't news. They will eventually put themselves out of business because they are so out of touch with ordinary Americans.

    From the article:

    This would be an example of Rule 11 of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals"

    The Liberal Media is corrupt?? No way? Can't be? Man,the Liberal Media is and always has been corrupt. This story isn't surprising to me at all. Lets face it,anyone with just a little common sense knows that Liberal Media outlets like CBS,NBC,ABC,CNN,NY Times,Washington Post,AP,etc. etc.,are designed to get Democrats elected. That's their only purpose at this point. Most Americans understand this though. The Liberal Media can't get away with what they used to get away with 20yrs. ago. People with common sense know they're basically full of chit. This scandal is just par for the course for them. Just take what they say with a grain of salt. That's what i have done for many years. It is very sad but it is what it is.

    This is a fascinating read. The MSMS conspired to cover-up the truth about Obama in order to influence the outcome of the election.

    ...In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

    Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”

    “Richard Kim got this right above: ‘a horrible glimpse of general election press strategy.’ He’s dead on,” Tomasky continued. “We need to throw chairs now, try as hard as we can to get the call next time. Otherwise the questions in October will be exactly like this. This is just a disease.”

    (In an interview Monday, Tomasky defended his position, calling the ABC debate an example of shoddy journalism.)

    Thomas Schaller, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun as well as a political science professor, upped the ante from there. In a post with the subject header, “why don’t we use the power of this list to do something about the debate?” Schaller proposed coordinating a “smart statement expressing disgust” at the questions Gibson and Stephanopoulos had posed to Obama.

    “It would create quite a stir, I bet, and be a warning against future behavior of the sort,” Schaller wrote.


    Tomasky approved. “YES. A thousand times yes,” he exclaimed.

    The members began collaborating on their open letter. Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones rejected an early draft, saying, “I’d say too short. In my opinion, it doesn’t go far enough in highlighting the inanity of some of [Gibson's] and [Stephanopoulos’s] questions. And it doesn’t point out their factual inaccuracies …Our friends at Media Matters probably have tons of experience with this sort of thing, if we want their input.”

    The Liberal Press is designed to get Democrats elected. Stories like this shouldn't shock anyone. The Liberals do dominate our Mainstream News Media. This is just the way it is. This is the way it has been for many many years. I think most Americans understand this though. The Liberal Press has actually become a joke at this point. This story really is typical of them.

    Fascinating read, perhaps.

    Completely comproimising the integrity of our republic and what made us great? No question about it.

    But, of course, THIS story will be ignored by the MSM as well and it will simply go down as another right wing conspiracy that was brought about becuase our current President is black.

    Listening to Lou Dobbs right now. He really is summing up these creeps perfectly. The Liberal Press is a joke. Liberal Media outlets like ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN,NY Times,Washington Post,AP,etc. etc.,only exist to get Democrats elected. I think more & more people are catching on to this though. People aren't buying their B.S. like they used to. It's just a big scam in the end. Goebbels would be so proud. :(

    Of course the MSM will ignore - many of whom are losing viewer/readership and looking to DC for a bailout. The same DC that is now attempting to put more restrictions on the alternate media (i.e. blogs). It's not a coincidence that the Feds shut down 73,000 blogs last week with no notice.
